Full description
This magical tour will start on Salzburg's charming Mirabellplatz, and take you over the Staatsbrücke, along the Salzach river past the Baroque old town, and down the Alpenstraße to the former border controls at Marktschellenberg. During the journey you'll be able to see the Königsee, and drive through the enchanting landscape of the Bavarian Alps, on your way to Obersalzberg (around 1000m above sea level.) Today, the location where Hitler had his holiday residence contains nothing but ruins. A road winds up to the place where the Kehlsteinhaus, Hitler's Eagle's Nest, once stood. The next stop is the Königsee, an azure lake encircled by steep, rugged cliffs. Allowing ample time for you to enjoy the scenery, the tour will then lead you back to Berchtesgaden, where, before your return to Salzburg, you'll be able to try out any of the enticing local delicacies on offer.

    It was a very good experience & i wud definitely recommend it . Sometimes, it felt like we were being hurried a bit , & sometimes we had to wait at places to fit in their schedule but we were always on schedule . The salient features were covered so overall it was good

    Everything worked out outstandingly, would highly recommend!

    It was 35 degrees on the day we took the tour. However the bus was pleasantly air conditioned. The guide “Andy what else” was a very nice fella, same with the bus driver. We understood everything, although the guide mostly spoke english. The trip was finished beautifully with the Königssee and Berchtesgaden. As I already said, I would love to do it again!!! Thank you : )
